Phoenix One Project
Preliminary testing shows increased micro processing capability and heat transfer using enriched silicon!

Silicon (Si)

Enriched silicon provides a completely new approach to microelectronics.  By using spin instead of charge to process information one can manipulate the methods used to store information and perform logic functions.

Phoenix -1 is isotopically enriched material that enhances the 1+ nuclear magnetic moment (spin parity) of silicon based material. Phoenix-1 patent #6365098 enriches natural silicon material with the two lesser abundant isotopes to alter the compound so silicon-29 with its spin parity of 1+ is the dominant isotope.

Silicon is one of the most abundant materials in the universe and is in wide use primarily in computer chip applications. Common sand and quartz are typical examples. Over 90% of natural silicon consists of the isotope silicon-28; the remaining portion is made up of two other isotopes, silicon-29 and silicon-30.

Silicon shares the same basic atomic bonding structure as diamond. Incredibly strong this face-centered-cubic (FCC) lattice is one of the best natural conductors of heat known, as much as four times better than copper or silver.  In addition to the potential for enhancing information processing Phoenix-1 material may also improve heat transfer and ductility of natural silicon due to the increased amounts of silicon-29 and 30.

There is nothing particularly difficult neither in accomplishing the isotopic separation for SI - 29 & SI-30 nor in manufacturing the material as these techniques are well known and are in common practice in the metallurgical and materials industries, in fact recent infrared free-electron laser has been used to improve the yield of enriched silicon isotopes by multiple-photon dissociation of Si2F6.

If you would like to participate in furthering the development of this new technology, please contact me through the form below. I am confident that we can work something out for mutual professional and economic benefit.  A test coupon of the enriched material has been made by Argonne National Labs.
